Dessert Workshop for Kids of All Ages

Today A Pinch of Salt hosted a Dessert Workshop for 60 elementary school students. We offered a spread with 3 stations: Red Velvet and Vanilla Cupcakes; Yogurt Parfaits and Carmel Apples. Each station was equipped with various toppings ranging from rice krispies to fresh strawberries!

The children had a ball and are probably coming off their sugar high as we speak. I know I'm usually teaching children the importance of eating healthy, but we all need to indulge every now and then especially when the base of the dessert is yogurt, apples and cupcakes made from scratch with real butter, eggs, vanilla and buttermilk. It was a great time and it felt very rewarding seeing children of all ages (security guards and teachers alike) enjoying themselves and satisfying their sweet tooth!

Happy Eating!

A Pinch of Salt Hands-On Cooking Classes

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Soon after launching our first A Pinch of Salt NYC Group Cooking Class I received a number of emails/ request for details of the next class! I am in the process of creating a webpage where those interested could easily view a calendar and sign up for a class. Until then please email me and I will add you to my email blast so you can get first hand news on any special events, discounts of offers.

Basic Information:
Classes are 3 hours long and as of April will be held monthly, with intent of having them run more frequently!

Price is $85 per person or $150 for 2 people and are taught by me personally. Cost includes cost of food and a glass of wine with your meal! As well as aprons to use during class and take home recipes for all!

Classes are held in a NYC professional kitchen that is intimate and quite lovely. Conveniently located near 50th St & 8th Ave.

I am happy to say that classes are intimate, 8 people per class only so you each get my individualized attention! And yes, they are hands-on!

Please note, in the event that you would like to schedule a private group cooking class (with a party of 8) we can arrange this with advance notice (2 weeks at least). Please notify me of this option in your email so we can arrange a date and time.

Currently planning a class in May. For details email

Happy Cooking!
